( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
1. I'd rather not use a solution using external modules, since the collector will have to run on MANY hosts as painlessly and non-intrusively as possible. Is there a high performance approach without external modules?
The modules cited in the code that Thelonius posted (IPC::Open3, IO::Select, Symbol) are not "external", in the sense that they are all included in the standard Perl "core" distribution. That is, wherever a reasonably current version of Perl is installed, these modules are also installed by default.

(If these many hosts you speak of have non-standard or hopelessly outdated perl installations, that's going to be a problem anyway.)

As for buffer size, the 1024 bytes suggested by Thelonius is fine for handling text that must ultimately be treated in a line-oriented fashion; if you're dealing with really high data rates, an 8k buffer should be about optimal.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
